Title: The Kingfisher
Description: London, Collins. 1969, First Edition. Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A Very Good+ copy with just a little light foxing to closed edges with price clipped dustjacket.

This unique study, by the Eastmans, of the kingfisher's life from their home at Whitchurch in Hampshire is an absorbing story of their explorations among the watercress beds and streams of the River Test and also includes their attempts at hand-rearing six abandoned youngsters and their amusing experiments at teaching them basic fishing skills. 7 colour plates and 7 illustrations.
